Export and Import Prices:
Expectations were for a reading of -0.1% for Export Prices and -0.2% for Import Prices. The Export Prices reading came in at -0.2% and the Import Prices reading came in at -0.3%. A positive report for mortgage rates (shows import and export prices are coming down which helps keep inflation stable/low). Lower inflation is good for the bond markets and consumer mortgage rates.
Post reports the 10y yield moved down to 2.10%.

The weekly Jobless Claims came in at 220,000.00 a bit higher than last week but overall a low number.
Economic Data Next Week:
On Monday we have the NY Fed Manufacturing report and the NAHB Housing Market Index.

The Fed meeting next week will be an important one. Bond analysts and investors want to hear their opinion on the economy is doing and what they are expecting over the next three to six months. If the Fed has some bond friendly views we could see a rally in bonds. If that rally is sustained over five to ten days then mortgage rates would improve.
